INFRARED SAUNA TO LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE
Revitalaser’s Infrared Sauna is fast becoming one of the clinic’s most popular treatments, bringing fantastic results for health, beauty and general well-being.
How is an infrared sauna different from a traditional steam sauna?
Heat treatments have been used for thousands of years to help heal and relax the body, from Native American sweatlodges to Turkish baths and Scandinavian saunas. Advances in technology have now given us an Infrared sauna which offers a supremely comfortable environment in which to achieve optimum improvements in health, beauty and general well-being.
Using heat and infrared light to relax and detoxify the body, they offer what is known as ‘parasympathetic’ healing, which means they help the body to control and handle stress. Infrared saunas differ from regular saunas because their light directly penetrates your skin, but does not warm the air around you. The temperature on your body goes up quickly, yet the light has no effect on your surrounding environment, which makes them safe to use anywhere.
The results of an infrared sauna are produced at lower temperatures than a conventional sauna, and therefore will be tolerated better by people who cannot withstand the very high heat of traditional saunas or steam rooms. Many people find the dry heat most uncomfortable. So because you sweat more at a lower temperature, you reap the benefits in less time and with no discomfort.
What does an Infrared therapy session feel like?
Your towel is laid out inside the sauna casing and after changing into your swimsuit, you lie full length on the infrared heating pad. The canopy containing the light-emitting cells is placed over your body, leaving your head out, resting on a pillow. This allows the light to reach all sides of the body.
Almost immediately you begin the feel the delicious warmth throughout your body and all tension draining away. The stresses and strains of everyday life recede into the distance and become meaningless, as you drift away into a weightless state of blissful relaxation.
Time ceases to exist in your warm cocoon, as your deeply relaxed state frees your mind from worry and anxiety. Many clients just drift off to sleep! Those who stay awake move into another realm of consciousness where all is peace and tranquillity, and, when their treatment time is up, cannot believe that any time has passed.
When your session is done, it’s suggested that you take your time and let your body cool down. Once cooled down, feel free to take a shower or bath. Just make sure you are drinking plenty of water.
What are the benefits of using an infrared sauna?
The benefits of using an infrared sauna include:
relief from sore muscles
relief from joint pain such as arthritis
clear and tighter skin
help for people with chronic fatigue syndrome
How will it help me to detox and give me better looking skin?
Infrared saunas raise the body’s core temperature and induce sweating which helps to eliminate toxins, including heavy metals such as Mercury and Lead, plus environmental pollutants which the body absorbs. Infrared sauna detoxification is many times more effective than that of traditional steam saunas. The detoxification effects, together with better blood circulation will result in clearer, softer skin and improve the appearance of cellulite.
Pain relief and better circulation
The heat generated by the infrared sauna brings a blissful feeling of slowing down, de-stressing and deep relaxation. This automatically relieves tension throughout the body. As your core body temperature increases, your circulation improves along with it, bringing all the benefits of improved blood flow to all parts of your body, including relief from muscle aches and joint pains.
Your core body temperature increases, which can also lead to an increased heart rate, similar to that experienced during cardio exercise. Your body has to work hard to keep up with an increased heart rate, which in turn burns calories.
Infrared sauna usage has improved poor mood and perception of fatigue by calming the mind, and helping people mentally to distance themselves from stress and anxiety. Even people without anxiety enjoy saunas for their ability to induce a calming sense of relaxation. A calmer mind sleeps better for longer than a restless one.
How often can I use the infrared sauna?
The infrared sauna is safe to use every day if wished, but most clients use it 3 or 4 times per week, for up to 45 minutes per session. Using an infrared sauna means you can help speed up important healing and detoxifying processes in your body.
